OK2SAY – Stop the Silence. Help End the Violence. A confidential way for students to report anything that threatens their safety or the safety of others.

Purpose

OK2SAY encourages confidential tips on criminal activities or potential harm directed at students, school employees or schools.

Breaking the Culture of Silence

A Secret Service study found that in 81% of violent school incidents, someone other than the attacker had knowledge of the plan, but failed to report it because of fear or retaliation or being labeled a snitch.

To eliminate that fear and help break the code of silence, the tipster's identity is confidential.

Over 20,000 tips strong, as of July 2019.  Check OK2SAY's website for updated tip information.

How to Submit a Tip to OK2SAY

Submit tips 24/7, with multimedia attachments.
